Digital Doula can enhance the personal, emotional and relational experience that women and their partners are going through in the days, weeks and months after a baby is born. It draws on the content of the book The Handbook for the Postnatal Period, by Dr Diane S Speier, and will be constantly updated with new material based on the latest research and various sources of information in the public domain.
A doula is someone who mothers the mother, and this app is a virtual doula for women having babies and experiencing both the joys and trials of becoming parents. Digital Doula is chock full of information and resources for new mothers and fathers in the early days after the baby arrives and through the months that follow. Some of the topics included are:
- The Fourth Trimester
- The Power of Hormones
- Attachment and Bonding
- The Negative Aftermath of Birth
- Nurture the Partner Relationship
- Positive Transitions to Parenthood
- Finding Community
- And more
